What is a Cohabitation Private Investigation?

A cohabitation private investigation is a type of private investigation that SPI focuses on to determine whether or not a person is living with a partner in a cohabiting relationship. Cohabitation investigations are often conducted for legal or financial purposes, such as to determine eligibility for spousal support, child support, or other financial arrangements. During a cohabitation investigation, SPI will gather evidence to determine whether or not the subject is living with a partner in a romantic or domestic relationship. This evidence may include surveillance footage, witness interviews, and background checks. The investigator will look for signs of cohabitation, such as shared expenses, shared living spaces, and shared daily activities. The goal of a cohabitation investigation is to provide the client with accurate and reliable information about the living situation of the subject. This information can be used in legal proceedings, such as divorce or child support cases, to determine eligibility for financial arrangements. SPI are highly skilled private investigators specialising in cohabitation investigations. We have firm knowledge of the operational requirements built up through many years of experience in the field. Our evidence gathering techniques prove effective on operations, which places our clients in far stronger positions during litigation proceedings.

Private investigators specialise in this field but SPI go the extra mile for clients. We provide video and photographic imagery, backed up with detailed reports and precise timings to correlate our findings.

Cohabitation Investigations with Divorce Settlements

Cohabitation private investigations can significantly affect divorce settlement figures and other aspects of divorce. If a spouse is found to be cohabiting with a new partner, this can have implications for spousal support, child support, and property division. In divorce cases, spousal support (also known as maintenance or alimony) is often awarded to a spouse who is financially dependent on the other spouse. If the dependent spouse is found to be cohabiting with a new partner, this could affect their eligibility for spousal support. Cohabitation can also affect child support arrangements, as the income and expenses of the new partner may be taken into account when determining child support payments. Cohabitation can also have implications for property division. In some cases, the assets and property acquired during the cohabitation may be considered when dividing the marital property. It's important to note that the effect of cohabitation on divorce settlement figures will depend on the specific circumstances of the case. The evidence gathered in a cohabitation investigation can be used to support arguments in court, but ultimately it will be up to the judge to make a decision based on the evidence presented. If you're considering a cohabitation investigation as part of a divorce case, it's essential to hire a reputable private investigator who will conduct the investigation legally and ethically. It's also important to work with an experienced family law solicitor who can advise you on how the evidence gathered in the investigation may affect your case.
